Taylor Lautner Keeps New Moon Role?

According to EW, Taylor Lautner may get to keep his Jacob Black role in New Moon. This week, Summit Entertainment is expected to announce its decision. Screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg explained the casting drama:

‘Jacob is a totally different character in New Moon. He’s a foot taller and huge, and he’s supposed to look 25. It’s really a question of whether or not the same actor can play the role. However, everyone would love to keep him. We all think he’s the loveliest person ever. Taylor has to play a romantic lead against Rob, who’s a 22-year-old man. That’s a tall order.’

    Im sorry but he doesnt properly fit the role of Jacob, therefore shouldnt play him. End of.
    I dont think that other chap should play him either.

    Theyre both too commercial and look like catalogue models – which isnt a good look.

    This whole is getting out of hand. Summit…you guys hired him why fire him? that for one is stupid. but twilight fans and taylor fans i know you all love him (i do too) but what are you going to do? i would though really love to have taylor play jacob but sometimes you can’t control what happens with things like this.

    I think it’s good they kept him. He’s very popular with fans and he’s already played Jacob in Twilight.
    Team Edward FTW.
    But I love Jacob aswell!

    they should’ve realised what they were getting into if they picked a sixteen year old, when in the next book he looks sooo much older.

    Too young and small to play Jacob in New Moon. I
    have a feeling that most fans will go and see the
    movie regardless who plays Jacob. Maybe we’ll get
    really lucky and they’ll recast Bella and Edward as

    Who cares? He can’t even act JACOB is stupid and useless, want Ben Barnes!!! He’s a lot hotter than this kid,
    Twilight is amazing,he doesn’t even appear that much,plus he’s ugly.

  • karee

    Team Taycob. :D

    Next to Rob he’s a just an ugly kid.

  • Carolinaajobrosfan(:

    Why is this a big deal?
    Seriously,I don’t want him,I can see him comming around between edward and bella,and I don’t want it,I prefer Ben Barnes.

  • ***Rachel***

    If Taylor can’t keep the role, I hope that the director knows that A LOT of the Twilight fan base will be really mad. Taylor should stay because he is actually TRYING to do anything he can to keep the role. He says he has been working out to try and bulk up and he has gained weight. As for being tall, THAT’S WHAT SPECIAL EFFECTS ARE FOR!!! THEY CAN MAKE HIM LOOK TALLER AND THEY CAN AGE HIS FACE TOO!!! The director is acting like he has limited resources. If he is going to have difficulty making Taylor look older, then he’s gonna have A LOT of difficulty with the guys changing into wolves. He is the PERFECT Jacob Black and that other guy is way too cocky and all of the Twilighters are gonna hate him because he doesn’t belong in the movie.

    Team TAYcob.

    Life comes with no guarantees, no time outs, no second chances.
    You just have to live life to the fullest,
    tell someone what they mean to you and tell someone off,
    speak out, dance in the pouring rain, hold someone’s hand, comfort a friend,
    fall asleep watching the sun come up, stay up late, be a flirt,
    and smile until your face hurts.
    Don’t be afraid to take chances or fall in love and most of all,
    live in the moment because every second you spend angry or upset is a second of
    happiness you can never get back ♥
